What did you think of the UFC last night?

The crowd in Montreal was one of the best ever, I think. My friends and I just about died laughing at the end of the Kalib Starnes Nate Quarry fight where the crowd would boo or cheer the respective fighters. Nate Quarry's Rocky IV speech actually made up for what was dreadful fight.
GSP was just on a different level from Matt Serra last night. I think I was most surprised with the ease GSP passed Serra's guard. I was hoping for a third round, but Serra sure as heck didn't complain about the stoppage. Once again, the crowd shows their class when GSP asks them to cheer Serra at the end and they complied. This outcome also sets up the most interesting possible outcomes to me: GSP vs Fitch for the title, and a true grudge match in Matt Serra vs MAtt Hughes.
Danzig looked impressive. Submitting Bocek is no easy task. Mark's face looked like hamburger after that match. I've known for a long time how good Bocek's wrestling is, but I wish he had incorporated (or at least been aware of) strikes in the clinching distance.
What was McCarthy doing against Bisping? He looked like a punching bag for the last minute well before he collapsed.
Lutter was disappointing against Franklin. Awesome talent on the ground, but is he cut out to be an MMA fighter? I think he needs Hawk in his corner providing some motivation or a much needed kick in the pants when called for.
I really wish we got to see the entire Maia/Herman fight, Maia is one of the, if not THE slickest BJJ'er in the UFC right now.
Also Cain Velasquez...believe the hype.
